    Confused and worried

    Whats going on in your body when you feel you period is over but it seems like you start bleeding again. I naturally feel that its stopped and over with and my cycle never goes past 5 days so I am a little confused its not heavy more on the lines of spotting and its very red almost like a cut or what you see in the first day of your cycle.
    georgiagail responded:
    A more important question is whether this bleeding even represents a menstrual periood or is due to some other medical issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.

    eiusw replied to georgiagail's response:
    Well I am not sure that is why I asked .i can only assume it is because my cycle just ended the day before I recognized it.
    georgiagail replied to eiusw's response:
    Sometimes slight spotting will occur a day or two after a menstrual period normally stops. This tends to happen with activities such as heavy lifting or sex.
